The Trump campaign has released the list of speakers slated to appear at the Republican National Convention, which will be hosted virtually this year — in lieu of the North Carolina or Florida locations — because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Describing the event as “historic,” the Trump campaign said on Sunday that the convention has been designed to “honor the great American story, the American people that have written it,” and how President Donald Trump has “empowered them to succeed.”

The list of speakers includes a mix of high-profile politicians, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), as well as other conservative activists and state politicians.

Several congressional hopefuls are also slated to speak, including Madison Cawthorn, a North Carolina businessman who won his primary earlier this year at age 24, Burgess Owens, a former NFL player and businessman running in Utah, and Sean Parnell, a former combat veteran running for office in Pennsylvania.

Congressional nominee Kimberly Klacik, who launched a massively viral video drawing attention to how policies in Baltimore have hurt the black community, will also appear at the convention. The video, in which Klacik walks the dilapidated city in high heels, pointing to problems Democrats have failed to fix, has been viewed 10.9 million times.

Seven members of the Trump family, including President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and White House advisor Ivanka Trump, will also have speaking roles. The full slate of speakers is listed below:
